NASA are sponsoring a highly esteemed robotics competition, where students from various schools compete to build a robot that can perform underwater. When four Mexican-American high school kids from Phoenix, Arizona decide to go for it, their parents and teachers are sceptical given that the previous year's winners was a highly funded project at M.I.T. They have very little money indeed, a little under a thousand dollars, but they have a wealth of determination and drive that brings them together to build a fully-functioning and innovative machine made simply from used car parts - despite their lack of technological experience. They may have the guts and the ambition to succeed in such a prestigious event, but the question is whether the judges will see that and value their project based on the heart and soul that has gone into it.

Computer genius Will Caster is involved in a technological program exploring the world-changing possibilities of artificial intelligence. Their goal is to create a machine that will have knowledge beyond the minds of human beings collectively, while also being able to reach Transcendence; a state in which this artificial mind can begin to feel human emotion. After a particularly enlightening seminar in which the goals of the project in terms of medicine are highlighted, he is shot suddenly. At first it appears that he is going to survive as the bullet didn't hit any major organs, but doctors quickly realise that the attack was much more insidious as it has been laced with radioactive matter. With only weeks to live as research labs across the country are being targeted by a radical anti-technology activist group called RIFT, Caster must find a way to live. When his wife Evelyn manages to upload his consciousness, it seems his project has been fulfilled - but it soon becomes clear that the power he is about to wield will put the world at risk.

Albert is one of the more lucky men living in his doomed Arizona town, mainly because he hasn't yet died; quite a feat for a sheep farmer who can't fire a gun in a time where outlaws rule the West. After one failed confrontation on his part, he is promptly dumped by his girlfriend, but this doesn't prove to be a bad thing when an extremely attractive and feisty new resident shows up in the town. Albert agrees to show her around her new neighbourhood, while she decides to help him man-up and learn how to gun fight properly. It's just as well because he soon finds himself facing mortal peril at the arrival of her ruthless outlaw husband - and he's not the only one who'd rather avoid confrontation this time. With his new friend's encouragement, however, he tries to step-up and take charge of the situation - let's just hope his luck hasn't run out by now.
Following the success of his live action directorial debut 'Ted', 'Family Guy' creator Seth Macfarlane is back with western comedy 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' in which he stars, directs and co-wrote with Alec Sulkin an d Wellesley Wild ('Dads ', 'Ted', 'Family Guy'). The movie is set to be released in the UK on June 6th 2014.
Albert is a sheep farmer who, unlike most men in his small Arizona town, is unable to handle a gun and tries to avoid confrontation at every opportunity. He gets dumped by his girlfriend for his spinelessness - but as a passive individual, he's still one of the luckiest guys in his neighbourhood having so far avoided death. This is a town where the residents are constantly in danger at every corner, but Albert finds his inner strength at the arrival of an attractive and feisty new resident who is willing to death him how to fire a pistol and stand up to his adversaries. And it's just as well when a dangerous outlaw shows up and starts to try and run the town, revealing that he is the husband of Albert's new female friend. Could his luck be up this time?
Will Caster is a computer scientist researching technology into the possibilities of artificial intelligence. After a gripping seminar where he described his desire to create a machine with not only an intelligence that exceeds human beings collectively, but also experience emotion - a state in which he refers to as Transcendence - he is gunned down by a radical activist who is part of anti-technology group RIFT. With the bullet not penetrating any major organs, the main damage the organization seems to have done is virtually attack research computers in all the main labs of the country, but when it turns out that that bullet was laced with radioactive material, Caster is given just weeks to live. Determined not to die, Caster and his wife Evelyn work out a way to upload his consciousness so that he can communicate even beyond the grave. However, not everybody is so sure of what has happened; a concern which becomes more and more warranted as Carter's mind begins to evolve.
